I take S France on G1, risking taking higher losses in the battle for France, then never make any German Navy in the Med as Uk is always just too strong and I fear losing the new units.
Without an Air Base any German builds seem doomed, but I cannot afford to blow 15IPCs making one when the ultimate objective is Russia.
UK well played is the death knell for Italy.
It wasn’t one of my better games and I doubt it should be used as a guideline (think it was my third Global?)
I wouldn’t recommend it under the current True Neutral rules unless Germany or Japan seriously sends some loaded transports and a carrier group to contest S. America (and be willing to invest in a minor IC as well). It’s just too much bonus to the US with all those extra free infantry produced. Japan could send a loaded transport(s) to take Chile on J3 in conjunction with an attack on Pearl Harbor; if Germany is threatening a Sealion and the US is built heavily into the Europe theater, it might work. You could also try a combined assault with Germany attacking from Gibraltar on G3 to seize Brazil or Argentina while Japan invades Chile; if you combine both carrier groups together and both powers built minor ICs, it could tie up the US for quite a while. It will also be a huge drain on the Axis war effort too, for a measly 8 S. American IPCs, but it might be worth it if it takes the US out of the war for another 4-5 turns.
They’re are three territories in USSR far worth a total of 3 ICP that Japan and take over and still not piss of Mongolia. I have only ever seen a player do this once but Japan and USSR not going to war is usually very useful for Japan as it keeps a front close and 9/10 times, USSR will be the one to invade which turns Mongolia into a strict neutral.
